The Great Book Swap

May 26 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm AEST

The School of Culture and Communication is participating in the Great Book Swap fund-raising initiative of the Indigenous Literacy Foundation. The Foundation was formed in 2011. Its mission is to enhance literacy in English and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages in remote communities. The Foundation receives no government funding and relies on its supporters and sponsors, including the Australian Publishers Association, the Australian Booksellers Association, the Australian Society of Authors, and the Children’s Book Council of Australia.

Our School wants to support the foundation by “swapping” the books we use in our teaching and research to raise funds to provide learning resources for children in remote communities. We are gathering works of fiction, poetry, and critical theory: especially studies in literature, art history, cinema, cultural studies, publishing, media and communications, and Indigenous studies. Our Book Swap will be held in the Atrium of Arts West, from 11.00 – 3.00.
